CPN-Maoist Centre Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that unity among honest communists was the need of the hour.

Addressing a programme organised at the party headquarters, Parisdanda, today, on the occasion 27th Memorial Day of martyr Ram Briksh Yadav, Dahal said that the recently held central committee meeting of the party had decided to rebuild the party.

He said, there are complaints that the party has deviated from party norms and therefore, the culture of self-evaluation and resolution is needed to address such complaints.

He went on to say that individualism had become dominant in the party and dedication to the party ideology, principles, norms and values was the need of the hour.

According to him, the party is preparing to further amend and revise the party ideology by organising a national conference and strengthening it through a general convention.

CPN-MC Chair Dahal also said, "There is possibility that we might further split and collapse if we fail to justify our presence. But, we will not allow that to happen. We will fight till the last breath without letting the contribution of martyrs go to waste."

He remembered martyr Yadav as a multi-dynamic personality, who he said, was open and clear about his ideology, and dedicated to the principles of communism and friendly to all.

Talking about the personality of Yadav, CPN-MC leader Narayan Kaji Shrestha said that contribution of martyr Yadav would always be remembered in the communist movement.
